Paper Abstract

The efficiency and robustness of neural feed-forward nets in particle searches is studied using the search for the standard Higgs Boson at LEP-200 as an example. Methods to select the most efficient variables, to define standard cuts, and to recognize significant differences between the training-data sample and a test-data sample are presented. The efficiencies of the neural nets are significantly better than those of standard methods.
